Legal Assistant Posts

Please note that the deadline for applications for Legal Assistant posts in 2023 has now passed.  We are no longer accepting applications for this year.

The next recruitment campaign is likely to take place early in 2024.  Details of the posts available then will be added to this website page towards the end of January 2024.

Equal Opportunities

The Scottish Law Commission and Scottish Government are committed to equality of opportunity of employment for all, on the basis of ability, qualifications and fitness for work. Applications are invited from all those who are, or expect to be qualified and eligible irrespective of race, age, gender, marital status, disability, religion or belief or sexual orientation.

The Commission will interview applicants who have a disability within the meaning of the Equality Act 2010, who meet the minimum criteria for appointment and who claim a guaranteed interview.

The Commission's Equality and Diversity Policy is reviewed on a regular basis.

In terms of the Race Relations Act 1976 we are required to undertake the ethnic monitoring of staff we employ directly and to publish the results. This duty only applies in respect of our legal assistants whom we recruit directly on fixed term contracts. The results of the monitoring for legal assistants appointed in August 2023 are available.
